Welcome to the Industry Initiatives for Science and Math Education (IISME) Community Website. This site provides a place for all IISME Summer Fellows to collaborate on curriculum, share perspectives on current educational issues, and reflect on pedagogical research as it relates to their own teaching practice.
As educators across the country continue to examine the best ways of teaching and learning, a new lexicon is beginning to emerge that describes one particular approach — deeper learning. The phrase implies a rich learning experience for students that allows them to really dig into a subject and understand it in a way that requires more than just memorizing facts.
A recent report found that educators believe that the secret to effective discipline is proactively building relationships, not reacting punitively to student misbehavior. In surveys with 300 New York City public school teachers that included an open-ended question about the largest threat to school safety, the most common response was a lack of cohesive culture and positive relationships between staff and students.
